"Game Of Thrones" picked up for a second season

by Diane Duane

And after just one episode. As we say in this neck of the woods: Not Too Shabby. 🙂

I haven’t seen the US numbers, but here are the UK ones:

“A Sky Atlantic spokesperson has confirmed that the UK and Irish premiere of ‘Game of Thrones’ on Monday, April 18th brought in an average of 743,000 viewers, peaking at 823,000 audience members. As such the show enjoyed the biggest opener since the channel’s launch trumping the channel’s previous highest overnight audience, ‘Boardwalk Empire’, the premiere of which brought in 438,000 viewers.

“The premiere broadcast of the Northern Ireland epic series brought in an average of 743,000 viewers and a peak of 823,000 across its broadcast from 9:00pm to 10:10pm on Monday, April 18th. This figure does not include those who saw the premiere through other media platforms such as Sky+. The UK and Ireland premiere broadcast of the series took place a day after the show’s US premiere, the audience figures of which will be available later this week.”

Can’t wait to see those.

(You go, George!!)
